Spinach & Seitan Chickpea Omelet

It’s a snowy day and I was craving tofu eggs again, but I was out of tofu. So I whipped up this recipe with chickpea flour. Chickpea flour is high in fiber and protein. Just a 1/4 cup has 6 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber! So give this recipe a try and let me know what you think!

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/3 cup nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp pink Himalayan sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup raw spinach
  • 1/4 cup seitan crumbles
  • Coconut oil spray to grease the pan
  • Hot sauce (optional)

Directions:

Mix all healthy the ingredients except for the spinach and seitan in a bowl. Heat pan and spray with coconut oil over medium heat. Pour batter into pan and put the spinach and seitan on top. Let it cook about 5 minutes or just until you can flip the omelet with a spatula. Cook for 1 more minute. Sprinkle wth a little salt and hot sauce and enjoy!
